7:01 am
we're set to go one on one with the hottest music star on the planet. her unprecedented two-day appearance begins right now. >> well, good morning, america. this is going to be so good! ♪ we are never ever ever getting back together ♪ turning times square red, and times square is so packed this morning. take a look at this moment. taylor swift, just a few minutes ago, liarriving in times square. they've been lined up all weekend long to see taylor swift. >> you can see why her brand-new album, "red" is shooting to number one on itunes. look at all those fans. you're going to go one on one. >> one on one with taylor swift. good morning, america. as you know, robin is home recovering from her bone marrow
7:02 am
transplant. we're glad to have amy robach here. tonight in boca raton, florida, there you see the table where mitt romney and barack obama will be sitting down with bob schieffer. foreign policy is the focus tonight. but, boy, this debate could not be more important. this race is as tight as it can possibly be. >> wow, those chairs look lonely. >> they won't in a little while. we also have our eye on a tropical system right now. could become a tropical storm, sam says in the next 24 to 48 hours. it could be heading for the east coast as well later this week. we know sam has his eye on that. >> he sure does. a lot of us have our eyes on this. brad pitt grabbed headlines for being the first man in history to be the face of chanel no. 5. now spoofs of him in the ad are getting big laughs. the question is is this a mistake for chanel? >> lots of attention there. want to get to first, the latest on the terrifying shooting that happened at a suburban wisconsin mall on
7:03 am
sunday. as we told you, four people are dead, now, including the shooter. four others are wounded. people racing to escape the chaos inside the spa. there were terrifying scenes from yesterday. abc's alex perez joins us from brookfield, wisconsin. alex. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. we've learned the gunman was the estranged husband of a woman who worked at the spa. and he had apparently been here to threaten her before. police sate say 45-year-old radcliffe haughton hunted down his wife and opened fire on her at the place where she worked. >> be advised the possible shooter is an ex-marine. he may be still armed. >> reporter: it all began after 11:00 a.m. witnesses say haughton stormed in, ordered everyone on the ground, and started shooting. customers, some still in robes, and others barefoot, ran out in panic. this man, along with his son and
7:04 am
nephew came face to face with the 14509er as he stepped outside, apparently looking to escape. >> when the suspect came around the corner, it really looked like he saw a deer in the headlights. he didn't expect us to be standing there. he ducked behind the building. >> reporter: moments later, police and s.w.a.t. arrived and surrounded the two-story building. police say haughton started a fire inside the building before shooting and killing himself. >> we were evacuating victims. getting calls from victims. that had hidden themselves in different rooms in the building. >> reporter: haughton's estranged wife, reportedly was killed. witnesses say her daughter, yasmen daniel, seen here in a facebook photo, also worked at the spa and witnessed the shooting. >> she said her stepfather was in the spa and was shooting as many people as he could. >> reporter: investigators say they're still not clear on why haughton snapped. they say he and his wife had been estranged for some time. earlier this month, he was arrested and charged after allegedly slashed the tires on his wife's car in the spa parking lot. she sought a restraining order.
7:05 am
it was issued just four days ago. though it was not enough. in a phone interview, haughton's father addressed the victims. >> all i can say, i want to apologize to the people of milwaukee who have been hurt. he did not give me any hint of what he would do. >> reporter: now, the four victims who survived the shooting are expected to make a full recovery. on a separate note, this tragedy comes just about two months after the sikh temple shooting. that unrelated incident happened just about 25 miles from here. george? >> a lot of tragedy there, alex, thank you very much. the race for the white house. it's "your voice your vote" with just 15 days to go, just hours before the final face-off in florida. new polls show the race completely up for grabs. abc's jake tapper starts us off from the debate site in boca raton. good morning, jake. >> reporter: good morning, george. that is right. it is anyone's race so the stakes are incredibly high. tonight is the last chance both candidates have to present their case to the american people, live in primetime.
7:06 am
the only thing definitive is confusion about how this will end. gallup has romney up nationally up by seven points, and investors business daily has obama up by six. and nbc/"wall street journal" has a tie. >> it's a very tight race. it's a competitive race. we always knew it was going to be in this place in the sense that it's coming down to a few states and a few votes. >> reporter: just as the polls are all over the map, so too will be tonight's debate -- all over the international map, focused on foreign policy and explosive stories about global hot spots, such as "the new york times" reporting that the u.s., for the first time, has agreed in principle to unilateral talks about iran and its nuclear program. and the diplomatic outpost in
7:07 am
benghazi, libya. >> it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in benghazi an act of terrorism. >> get the transcript. >> he did, in fact, sir -- he did call it an act of terrorism. >> reporter: a scene that provided tension in real life. and laughs on "saturday night live." >> i'm willing to bet here and now that you have never, in your life, even once used the phrase "terrorist act." >> get the transcript. get 'em. >> governor, he has in fact used the phrase "terrorist act." >> candy, no, no, no. candy, no. [ laughter ] >> i'm afraid he did. >> candy, please. >> reporter: the candidates spent the weekend in intense debate prep. the president reviewing briefing materials and doing debate prep at camp david. mitt romney prepped, as well, though he also dined with his family at a diner in delray beach. after coaching his staff before game of flag football against reporters. >> this is very simple. figure out which of the players is best and take them out early. >> reporter: and after tonight, of course, it's the home stretch race for states. the obama team thinks they can eke out a victory by holding out the states that john kerry won and picking up ohio and nevada. and iowa.
7:08 am
the romney campaign, of course, thinks they will stop them from doing that. george? >> okay, jake, thanks very much. for more, let's bring in martha raddatz, martha, of course, moderated the vice presidential debate and matthew dowd. >> good morning. >> the focus tonight is on foreign affairs. a lot of new information coming out over the weekend, including that report in "the new york times" now denied by both the u.s. and iran, that direct talks between the u.s. and iran could be coming soon. >> there were a lot of denials over the weekend. you notice that "the new york times" didn't take that story out of the paper. there's clearly something going on diplomatically. anything going on diplomatically could probably help the president. also leaves a simple question to mitt romney. if there was a possibility for face-to-face negotiations, one on one, would you do that or risk another war in the middle east? >> and his surrogates seem to come down on both sides of the question. >> which has happened quite frequently during this campaign.
7:09 am
you don't really know the difference between these men on a lot of different issues and i think iran is basically one of them. >> in the meantime, we've seen the latest poll out of the "wall street journal"/nbc. 47-47, pretty much corresponds to what we're seeing out there. a dead heat either way. >> all of those seem to be converging on a dead heat either way. which makes this debate so important. these moments we have seen really changes the dynamics of this race more than anything else. it makes it really important for the president. i think tonight's test is more a commander in chief/strong leader test. i think that's why the dynamics of iran and all those other things fit the mold and make it really important. >> it's also conceivable, martha, in this kind of debate when new issues are opened up, you see the kind of mistake that could make the difference in a campaign as well. everyone remembers gerald ford in 1976, it could have cost him the race, when he said poland is not an occupied company. >> that's exactly right. and mitt romney and foreign policy, i'm actually surprised they agreed to do a foreign
7:10 am
policy debate for the very last debate. >> we'll see what happens, bob schieffer, the moderator. diane and i will be here to cover the debate at 9:00 p.m. eastern. right now to josh for the other morning headlines. good morning to you. we're going to begin with big news about gas prices. a new prediction that could fall about 50 cents per gallon. the questions now, why? and which states will see the biggest savings? abc's paula faris is here with some answers. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, josh. help is on the way. just in time for the early holiday season. we're expecting gas to fall roughly 50 cents per gallon. over the next 30 days. look at last month's average compared to what folks are paying this morning, at $3.66. that could go down to $3.35 by thanksgiving. you want to know why, two main reasons, economic supply and demand. lower demand and winter blend. one thing to note about the winter blend, you may not get as
7:11 am
much gas economy as from, say, the summer blend. who is going to feel the relief the most? states in red, i don't have to tell you, you have been paying the highest prices in the country. states like alaska and california and new york. relief is on the way. definitely, josh, some welcomed news for all of us as we enter into the holiday season. >> indeed. paula faris, thank you for that. developing story overseas. what's being called a major al qaeda terror plot foiled in the middle east. authorities say the 11 suspects that you see here planned to attack shopping malls and assassinate u.s. and british diplomats in jordan. they say the suspects smuggled explosives into the country from neighboring syria which is in the midst of a bloody civil war. that civil war also spilling into lebanon. violent clashes between sunni and shiite groups there erupted again today. the violence has escalated since friday's killing of a top intelligence official which many claim was carried out by the syrian regime. meanwhile, new photos of fidel castro appear to contradict rumors that he's on his deathbed. one shows him in a van with government officials.
7:12 am
the other, you see there, shows him reading friday's newspaper. a state-run newspaper published an article by castro today in which the 86-year-old brags he doesn't even suffer from headaches these days. and an horrific attack caught on camera in california. a man threw a molotov cocktail at another man. you'll see him engulfed in flames as he runs from the scene. he did survive, thanks to people nearby, who helped put out the flames. a frantic mother raced to get her baby's stroller away from that just in time. no word yet on a motive for the attack. we'll have updates as news warrant. and tonight it will not just be "monday night football" competing on tv with the presidential debate. there's also a rather important baseball game, as well. it's because the giants once again shut down the cardinals last night. forcing a winner-take-all game seven.
7:13 am
the tigers await. it should be quite a scene in san francisco. of course, it should also be quite a scene elsewhere. lots to get done tonight. >> a lot going on, that is for sure. >> lots to get done. >> all right, josh, thanks so much. we have some breaking news now on lance armstrong, the global governing body of cycling has just announced moments ago it will ban armstrong for life and strip him of his seven tour titles. abc's neal karlinsky joins us from seattle with the very latest on this breaking news. neal? >> reporter: amy, that's right. this is it. the uci cycling's governing body at the press conference going on in switzerland right now, officially stripping armstrong, banning him for life saying, quote, there is no place in cycling for lance armstrong. this was the final hurdle in what is now officially an epic downfall. lance armstrong turning into a virtual outcast in just a matter of days. in what looked at times more like a good-bye party than a celebration, lance armstrong made two appearances at livestrong's 15th anniversary this weekend. but he didn't concede much.
7:14 am
>> people ask me a lot, how are you doing? i tell them, i've been better. but i've also been worse. >> reporter: as his reputation, sponsorships and influence have fallen off a cliff, the silence surrounding his methods over the years has begun to crack. a former competitor testified in this deposition that armstrong bribed him to throw a race with a $1 million prize. >> what was the offer? >> if my memory serves me right, it was $50,000. >> is it fair to say you were offered money to not challenge mr. armstrong, to allow him to win? >> that's correct. >> reporter: armstrong won that race. former "sports illustrated" reporter, selena roberts, tells the story that whenever a doping question was raised, it was met with threats and intimidation. >> i don't think there's really any politician or celebrity or athlete who has really put together the machinery to, you know, suppress reporting of that like lance armstrong has.
7:15 am
>> reporter: former bicycling magazine writer writes, armstrong exerted a corleone-type of influence in our industry. armstrong could make an advertiser disappear from our pages. one reporter said they tried to smear her when they heard she was investigating doping allegations. and she said livestrong was never far from the surface. something others referred to as his cancer shield. >> you're confronted with the sort of the perception that if you're not pro-lance, then, absurdly, you're pro-cancer. >> reporter: a pile of multimillion-dollar lawsuits are coming next. and he'll also likely have to return millions more in prize money. the trouble keeps coming for lance. amy? >> so many new allegations. thank you so much. and now, any of you who think you have bad luck in neighbors. stick around for this surveillance video. it's a miami man. according to his neighbors, he's been at it like this for over a year. abc's john muller is here with the story. boy, john, nice guy.
7:16 am
>> yeah, i tell you what, george. be glad about your neighbors. they call him the neighbor from hell. now, he's been arrested. miami homeowners say they were living in constant fear. things got so bad, they joined together and bought a high-tech surveillance camera. wait until you see what it captured. take a look at this video as an unidentified man throws a rock through a car window. and here, watch these unknown men spray gasoline on a car. and this, a boat bursting into flames. members of this miami community accuse mitchell igelko of all of these crimes, a man they call the neighbor from hell, saying he hired others to do his dirty work. >> he's an angry guy, and he tries to intimidate you. >> reporter: police are still investigating those incidents and igelko has not been charged in them. but late last week, igelko was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and stalking in separate incidents. >> we have property damage and psychological damage. >> reporter: here cameras allegedly catch him throwing what looks like an egg at
7:17 am
someone's house. and in this video, neighbors say it's igelko sprinkling bags of nails on their driveways and lawns. >> i was getting flat tires, not only myself but everybody in the neighborhood. >> reporter: neighbors allege this one-man reign of terror started in 2008 when igelko, a landscaper, started feuding with neighbors bob and kelly derhagopian. after they hired another company to do some work. others say they were terrorized, too, so they joined together and put up surveillance equipment. watch here as what appeared to be liquid squirting from the white truck. the next day, the grass was killed. neighbors say igelko was behind it. >> nobody should have to live like this. >> reporter: his lawyers say this is nothing more than an ongoing neighborhood dispute, and igelko, himself, has been victimized by vandals. >> to suggest that my client would vandalize his own home, burn his own grass, throw eggs on his own cars is absolutely preposterous.
7:18 am
>> reporter: igelko, who is awaiting a court appearance, has not entered a plea yet. the lawyers told abc news that they're waiting to get access to the tapes to better respond to the allegations. miami police are viewing those tapes and it's possible more charges could be pending. george, amy. >> the lawyers' work is cut out for them. >> wow. >> cameras don't lie. >> no, they don't. neither does sam champion. >> well -- >> okay. most often, not. >> but never under oath. george, never under oath. hey, take a look at these clouds, by the way, the "gma" three-day view south of jamaica. you'll notice what looks to be forming here could be a future tropical system in about 24-48 hours, says the hurricane center, so we'll watch it. here's what the models have with this storm doing, it's kind of in that zone until thursday-ish and then it starts to make a move. we know the storm is going to swing in that direction. how close it will get, we'll watch it very carefully. into the northwest, 1 to 3 inches of rain in
7:19 am
seattle. not just rain, some places will get 6 to 12 inches of snow. so look at that in the white zones, also the hot pink zones where the highest snow totals will be. yep, we begin that season.

about when holt approached whitney or if he's stalking her. and neighbors are just as confused. >> something snapped or something. you know, it's like something nobody expects of anybody. >> reporter: a heartbreaking loss and a husband still searching for answers. >> she was just a beautiful little person, just full of love. and was a ray of light to everybody. >> we tried reaching out to holt through his wife, but she did not respond. he will make his first court appearance later today. george? >> okay, thanks for more. let's bring in former fbi consultant brad garrett. and we learned a few details about how this couple new mr. holt. i guess that's the first thing the inverses are going after, the extent of the relationship. >> right, there may be none, george. this could be an attraction by whether holt or was he breaking into her car when she was going to work but something went
